Drosophila melanogaster is a proven model system for many aspects of human biology. Here we present a two-hybrid-based protein-interaction map of the fly proteome. A total of 10,623 predicted transcripts were isolated and screened against standard and normalized complementary DNA libraries to produce a draft map of 7048 proteins and 20,405 interactions. A(More)
Critical reagents are essential components of ligand binding assays (LBAs) and are utilized throughout the process of drug discovery, development, and post-marketing monitoring. Successful lifecycle management of LBA critical reagents minimizes assay performance problems caused by declining reagent activity and can mitigate the risk of delays during(More)
Biomechanical forces can modulate endothelial phenotype through changes in gene expression. We hypothesized that physiological laminar shear stresses (LSS) act as differentiative stimuli on endothelial cells (EC) to alter gene expression, creating an antioxidant, anti-apoptotic and anti-proliferative environment. The transcriptional profile of cultured(More)
